the exhibition the 5th of last April, & much from that at the Methodist Church two years ago. I know nothing about the school yet at B. I have been offered the school at the (?) school house but shall not take it. Mother is reading the foreign news & Father & Eva and I are for bed. War & rumors of war in Europe is the latest. 6th Wednesday. At home and busy. 7th This afternoon, Hoyt & Mr. Will, cousin George (I canâ€™t think of his other name) called this afternoon. Hoyt is just as pleasant as usual and his cousin is very pleasant. He goes Saturday. How much there is in the shake of the hand. Hoyt shakes hands as though he was a friend. I finished to day with spelling school.
